Can Mental Health Games lead to Addiction?

Hi everyone!

Hope you’re all doing well! I’ve been pondering something lately and wanted to get your thoughts on it. So, we often talk about the benefits of mental health-related games in terms of stress relief and mindfulness. But here’s a twist - do you think these games could potentially lead to addiction?

We’ve seen how engaging video games can be, and if a mental health game becomes a daily escape, could it inadvertently turn into a habit that’s hard to break? What are your opinions on this?

Now, I’m not saying these games are bad – in fact, they can be quite helpful – but do you think there’s a line between helpful engagement and addictive behavior when it comes to mental health-related games?

Here are a couple of questions to share your thoughts:

  1. Have you ever found yourself spending more time on a mental health game than you initially intended? If so, how did you manage to balance it?
  2. Do you believe game developers have a responsibility to incorporate features that prevent excessive use or addiction, similar to what some social media platforms have started doing?

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this topic! :blush:
